Understanding EPAT®

Let’s treat the root cause of your pain

What is EPAT®?

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) is the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment method cleared by the FDA. This proprietary technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process.

What disorders can be treated?

Generally, acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life including:

  • Foot and heel pain
  • Achilles pain
  • Tendon and/or tendon insertion pain
  • Neuromas
  • Trigger points

What are the expected results?

Some patients report immediate pain relief after the treatment, although it can take up to four weeks for pain relief to begin. The procedure eliminates pain and restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain free and/or have significant pain reduction.

How is the treatment performed?

Coupling gel is applied to the treatment area of interest to enhance effectiveness. After these preparations, EPAT® pressure waves are released via the applicator moved over the area of interest in a circular motion.

Is it safe?

Yes. This FDA cleared technology was developed in Europe and is currently used around the globe. A wealth of medical experience, state-of-the-art engineering and optimal quality have been built into each EPAT® device, and extensive clinical studies and tests have confirmed its safety and efficacy.

What is the duration of the treatment and how many treatments will I need?

Treatment sessions take approximately 5-10 minutes depending on the disorder to be treated. Generally, at least 3 treatment sessions are necessary at weekly intervals.

What are the possible side effects or complications?

The non-invasive EPAT® treatment has virtually no risks or side effects. In some cases patients may experience some minor discomfort which may continue for a few days. It is normal to have some residual pain after intense exercise or a full day of work.

What if I have a special health condition?

The safety and effectiveness of the EPAT® procedure has not been determined on people with the following health conditions. Your doctor will provide you with information about how these and other conditions might affect the determination to perform the EPAT® procedures.

  • Malignancies
  • DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)

Why consider non-invasive EPAT®?

EPAT® has a proven success rate that is equal to or greater than that of traditional treatment methods (including surgery) and without the risks, complications and lengthy recovery time.

  • Performed in your physician’s office/clinic
  • Does not require anesthesia
  • Requires a minimal amount of time

Patients can:

  • Bear weight (i.e. walk) immediately
  • Return to work/normal activities within 24-48 hours
  • Resume strenuous activities after 4 weeks

FAQs for EPAT Cellulite Therapy

How long is the treatment?
Depending on how many areas of cellulite are being treated, each session of EPAT treatment usually lasts between 20 to 40 minutes. We recommend a total of 6 to 8 sessions over a three to four week period.

Is the treatment painful?
Actuall, the staff at the Cellulite Institute and Clinic has developed the physical skills to minimize the discomfort of the treatment by skillfully manipulating the tissue and the direction of the pressure wave pulse. For most areas, such as the thighs and buttocks, the discomfort is usually minimal.

How soon can one see the results?
Usually within the first week one can notice the tightening and smoothing of the skin surface. The effect will be apparent after 6 to 8 sessions, and the full effect will be realized in about 2 to 3 months. The improvement usually will last for one to two years.

What are the potential risks?
The most common risks are temporary, such as bruising of the treated area, pin point bleeding of the skin, and superficial spider veins.

Is anesthetic required for the treatment? Is there any down time?
The EPAT therapy is done in the office without any need of anesthetic or pain medication. The patient can resume all normal activities right after treatment.

Recommendations

The EPAT cellulite therapy is the first line recommendation by the Cellulite Institute and Clinic to effectively treat cellulite. This recommendation is based on the multiple effects of EPAT in improving the following:

The skin tone and elasticity and skin thickness by collagen stimulation

Decreasing the subcutaneous fat cell size by lipolysis, and thus decreasing the fat pockets causing cellulite

Improved local circulation and lymphatic drainage to decrease swelling and inflammation

Stimulation of healing and collagen production
